this ain’t a scene, it’s an arms race lyrics – fall out boy

“this ain’t a scene, it’s an arms race”

i am an arms dealer
fitting you with weapons in the form of words
and don’t really care which side wins
as long as the room keeps singing
that’s just the business i’m in, yeah

this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
i’m not a shoulder to cry on
but i digress

i’m a leading man
and the lies i weave are oh so intricate,
oh so intricate

i’m a leading man
and the lies i weave are oh so intricate,
oh so intricate

i wrote the gospel on giving up
(you look pretty sinking)
but the real bombsh*lls have already sunk
(prima donnas of the gutter)
at night we’re painting your trash gold while you sleep
crashing not like heaps of cars*,
no, more like p-p-p-parties

this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
this bandwagon’s full
please, catch another

i’m a leading man
and the lies i weave are oh so intricate,
oh so intricate

i’m a leading man
and the lies i weave are oh so intricate,
oh so intricate

yeahh…
whoa-ohh

all the boys who the dance floor didn’t love
and all the girls whose lips couldn’t move fast enough
sing, until your lungs give out

this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
(now you)
this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
(wear out the groove)
this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
(sing out loud)
this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race
(oh, oh)
this ain’t a scene, it’s a godd*mned arms race

i’m a leading man
and the lies i weave are oh so intricate,
oh so intricate

i’m a leading man
and the lies i weave are oh so intricate,
oh so intricate
